Impact. That was one of the first words I realized was the reason I had to live my life uncloseted. Then, I happened upon a book entitled, The Art of Non-Conformity, and I knew I had found a voice, a spirit, and a mentor that inspired me. Little did I know that in 2010 that reading that book would lead me to meeting today’s Life Uncloseted guest – Chris Guillebeau.
He’s a genuine guy who lives a non-conforming life, builds communities, takes on adventures, and ensures that at the heart of everything he operates from a place of service. He may be a NY Times and Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, The Founder of World Domination Summit, and one of a handful of people on the planet to have visited all 193 countries, but in reality, he’s a person I’m glad to know and witness how he lives his life. This is his life uncloseted story.
